So, I have been neglecting the story of the "Ground Zero" mosque and Pastor "Yosemite Sam" who threatened to burn Korans as his chosen response. I grew up in a parsonage and spent my first 18 years listening to church fights. I HATED them then, and I studiously ignore them now.
But as a summary of pure crazy, Colbert's piece on this latest reminder that the lessons of the Enlightenment are barely learned and those looking for a cheap way to validate their existence have an infinity of ways to glorify irrationality, borders on pure genius. Kudos to his superb writers.
